Complaints and questions

We received this letter this morning:
"I'm motivated to write to you because I think less of the Observer-Reporter in its present form. I changed my purchase from daily to Sunday only because I grew tired of seeing President Obama's picture(s) on the front page, with supporting information. A newspaper, in my opinion, is supposed to report factual news, designed to stimulate my thinking. Instead the O-R appears to be very Democratically-biased, so that I believe that your publication is controlled externally somehow and I can't accept that.
"I am also subjected to news of rapes, murders and other stories of criminal nature; I'm tired of it. Thanks for your attention and interest. - G.C.

A: I'd like to answer your letter, but I'll need to get President Obama's permission first. - G.O.E.

I can personally attest to the fact that the Observer-Reporter is not "Democratically-biased."

I was a Republican candidate for the PA House endorsed multiple times by the O-R editorial board.

Whoever G.C. is, I can only figure that he/she is joking. By the way, were you able to get permission from President Obama to answer the question? Meanwhile I'm enjoying your current travelog.

I guess we've been found out. I'm coming clean. We are externally controlled by beings from the planet Zerxon. We tried tinfoil hats, but their messages are still getting through and we ... can't ... resist.

I wonder hwo the Northrop family feels about being "controlled externally somehow."

The difference between external and internal control is the difference between being a puppet and being a marionette... think about THAT one for a second :-)
